Lara Padilla Lopez lives and works between Spain and USA.

She is a graduate in Fine Arts from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain.
In 2012, after a rewarding career in Spain, she decided to expand her horizon by traveling to the United States. Before living in New York, she spent 6 months in Miami, Florida, which gave her the opportunity to improve her language skills and gain intimate appreciation of North American culture.
She further enriched her knowledge in audiovisual media and pursued a post-grad degree in Direction of Photography for Cinematography in TAI School of Arts, Madrid, Spain.
She also took classes in camera operation, Steadicam, digital postproduction and digital photography.
She believes that learning, and learning in different ways, means growth.
Part of the learning process involves the use of multiple approaches and formats including painting, photography, cinema, dancing, among others, to express and develop her work.
Each approach and medium is determined by her precise study of the circumstance, the theme she is working on, the message that she wishes to convey, and what works most effectively.
She has participated in various solo and group exhibitions, and worked for clients such as
Pepe Jean´s, or Levi´s Spain.
Additionally, Lara can be seen photographing for a variety of ongoing projects and events.
Currently, she is working with Patricia Field – the lead stylist behind the series Sex In The City –  for her project Patricia Field Art Fashion, creating hand painted unique clothing pieces.
